Conor Pass Challenge Update

Hi All,

The club committee would like to thank all those who contributed so much to the successful running of our Conor Pass Challenge on 19th September last. Feedback to date has been universally favourable, and this is due entirely to the input of the Club members and other volunteers to the planning, sign-on, catering, signage, marshalling and execution of the event.

The Club would specifically like to express their thanks to:

  • St Pats GAA club for the generous use of their facilities
  • Those volunteers that gave their time (and for some their cycle) to cater, marshall and run the event
  • The Gardaí and the Red Cross  for their invaluable, professional support on the day
  • Barrys Bakery and Garveys Supermarket for their generous donation of foodstuffs for the participants
  • The motorcycle marshalls who provided world class feedback and assistance to the event organisers on the day
  • Our patrons Tony Costello and Finbar Canty in Costellos Building Contractors and The Blasket Bar and Restaurant
  • Dan Devane for his camera work (all it would have taken would have been a helicopter to fly overhead for people to think we had Eurosport in on the day!)
  • Currow CC and the Earl of Desmond CC for their assistance with signage etc
  • Anthony O’Halloran for providing mechanical support for the event and for the generous donations to the event

And  of course we would like to thank and congratulate the participants (all 104 of you) who travelled from all over Munster to complete the Conor Pass Challenge and make the clubs first event such a success.

Plans are in the works for the 2010 Chain Gang CC sportives on the Dingle Peninsula and we hope to see you again for the great cycling challenges we aim to run
